About the Austrian GP

F1 Anoraks may not be enthusiastic about Austria’s A-1 Ring, but the track still presents a challenge for teams and drivers. Its twists, turns, and hills means drivers must have a good balance to succeed there, and not surprisingly the top teams normally reign supreme. Having said that, Jarno Trulli nearly pulled off a superb win for Prost in 1997, but was robbed by poor reliability. Like Germans, Austrian people are enthusiastic about Formula One, and they are normally present in great numbers at Zeltweg for the race. As for the scenery, it doesn’t come much better the beautiful rolling hills complete with pine trees and cattle surround the circuit, making for a pleasant destination.

Set up

Medium downforce levels. Mechanical grip is vital in Austria meaning that an all-round balance in set up is crucial for a decent lap.
